Her insight--which came after years of struggling with her own daughter's hair-- resulted in a hairbrush no bigger than the palm of a hand that makes most hair knots disappear and at a fraction of the cost of other less effective products. A mother Of three came up with a brush no bigger than the palm of a hand that makes most hair knots and tangles disappear. Rikki Mor's invention is called the Knot Genie. Its effectiveness has to do with the varying lengths of teeth on the brush. When brush- ing, the bristles gently bend to unravel even the most stubborn knots. The brush has achieved something of a cult following among many celebrities and consumers who have tried it. One woman even said it transformed her life by mak- ing a difference in her daugh- ter's behavior by eliminat- ing morning battles over hair brushing. This powerful detangling brush comes in three sizes: Original Knot Genie, Teeny Genie (travel sized) and Genie , Supreme (with handle grip). To learn more, visit www. KnotGenie.com.

Vos Tips On Managing Cholesterol With Diet And Exercise (NAPS)---There's actually some good news for those at risk for heart disease. Experts say there are sev- eral risk factors for heart dis- ease that can be controlled through a combination of behavior and diet. One of the more important of these fac- tors is blood cholesterol. Cholesterol can build up in our arteries and cause blood flow to be restricted. This can raise blood pressure and strain the heart; it also raises risk of developing heart attacks and strokes. Here are some tips that can help you man- age your cholesterol: Know Your Numbers Stay on top of your health by getting your important numbers checked regularly by a doctor o~ a nurse. These include blood cho- lesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, BMI (body mass index) and blood pressure. Total Cholesterol--If your total cholesterol is less than 200 mg/dL, your risk for heart attack is thought to be relatively low. LDL Cholesterol--This is your "bad" cholesterol and is one~ of the most important numbers for determining your risk for heart ~. The ideal level is less than 100 mg/dL. HDL Cholesterol--This is your "good" cholesterol and ideally is greater than 60 mg/dL. Blood Pressure--Blood pressure is the measure of the blood as it pushes against the arteries in your body. A desir- able blood pressure is 120/80 mm Hg. Get Moving Another way to help man- age your cholesterol is to get The American tlesrt Asaockt- tion recommends a heart- healthy diet as one way to your chok e . some physical activity every day to help keep your heart strong. Regular exercise also helps to boost your levels of HDL. It can also help to maintain a healthy weight, which makes your heart's job eas- ier while lowering stress. Chronic stress can strain the heart, just like extra weight. Try healthy ways to vent stress, such as breath- ing exercises. Diet And Cholesterol The American Heart As- sociation recommends a heart-healthy diet as one way to help manage your choles- terol. Such a diet includes: Fruits prepared with lit- tie or no added sugar, fat or salt; Vegetables prepared with little or no added sugar, fat or salt; ~an meats and poultry; Soy protein: soy milk or soy meat analogs; Fish: Preferably fish with ~healthy fats," such as salmon or tuna, baked, broiled, grilled or boiled--but not fried; Dairy: Low-fat or fat- free milk (1 percent or skim), low-fat yogurt, low-fat cheese; Whole grains: cereals, breads, pastas and tortillas made with whole grain, and brown rice; Oats, which contain sol- uble fiber that can help soak up some cholesterol and pre- vent it from being absorbed by your digestive tract Eating foods made from oats, such as Cheerios, may help lower cholesterol. Here is a recipe that uses Cheerios as part of a heart- healthy snack. You can pack individual servings of this snack in small containers or plastic bags for family mem- bers who are on the go.
